The other main “guy on stage in a room addressing an audience” presentation I did at Notacon this past weekend was a little stranger. But maybe you’ll dig it.
(Here’s a link to the page if the embedded player doesn’t work.)
Here’s how it came about.
I’ve attended a lot of presentations, watched them online and sat in person while people on some sort of stage wanted to transfer information. Some have been breathtaking and informative. The “breathtaking/informative” portion has not been a majority of the ones I’ve seen; let’s put it that way. Some of this is because I attend hacker conventions, which have a much lower barrier-to-stage than conventions where the speakers are being paid or being flown in or otherwise cared for. Sometimes people are on stage to get free tickets. Others honestly want to get information across to an audience but they focus entirely on dumping the information without considering the manner in which they do so.
I figured, what hey, my talks get generally positive marks in their realm, and I’m always into explaining things, so I offered to drop a bunch of tips on the audience, and specifically the upcoming weekend speakers, about what I knew about giving a good presentation.
I cranked on this one. I spent a lot of time collating my knowledge, and trying to make the presentation itself a good one. I’ll welcome reviews. Someone, the next day, apparently asked the registration desk where he could get a copy of the talk, so that’s nice to hear. Maybe you’ll get something out of it too.
This was recorded on an HD camera, but with no operator, so it’s OK recording, sound and video, but hardly a professional multi-camera setup. Good enough for this, though. Enjoy.
